Notre Dame School is a historic former school building located at 34 St. Joseph's Street in Fall River, Massachusetts. It was built in 1899, and designed by local architect and parish member Louis G. Destremps, who also designed the nearby St. Joseph's Orphanage and Notre Dame de Lourdes Church.

The large three story brick parochial school was built in the Colonial Revival style. Its full entablature is enhanced by small brackets and dentils. The central entrance is recessed with a covered entry supported by fluted Doric columns. The base is constructed from locally-quarried Fall River granite The school opened in the fall of 1900 and was known at the time as Notre Dame College.[2]

The school was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. The school closed in June 2008.[3]
